The arrest of a Teague man on July 28th who was allegedly in possession of a stolen trailer and zero turn lawn mower led to the recovery of over $30,000 worth of more items discovered by area law enforcement agencies on August 8th.
Freestone County Sheriff?s Office Investigators Jeremy Shipley and Clayton Aldrich, and Teague Police Department members Lt. Mike Noll and Chief Dennis Cox made the discovery of the additional stolen items in Anderson and Henderson Counties between the hours of 1:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
According to information released by Investigator Shipley, recovered on August 8th were ATV?s, riding lawn mowers, trailers, and a camping trailer. Some of the items recovered were reported stolen as far back as 2010. A new zero turn mower and trailer stolen from the City of Teague recently were part of the items discovered by the officers, according to Chief Cox.
Further information stemming from this investigation is not being released at this time due to the investigation being ongoing.
?The property owners, the victims of the items being stolen, are thrilled to be getting their property back,? said Investigator Shipley. ?This is a great example of multiple agencies working together in order to accomplish a common goal and that goal is to serve and protect the people to the best of our ability for which we are sworn in to do so.?
